Portrait of Oswaldo Cruz on a card signed by the scientist

The Oswaldo Cruz Virtual Library offers an overview of the life and particularly of the career of the scientist Oswaldo Cruz. The material is drawn from a gamut of historical records held by the Casa de Oswaldo Cruz in the form of personal archives, bibliographic collections, and museum pieces.

These record collections comprise a rich tapestry of references and information that is invaluable for anyone interested in learning about Cruz’s scientific work and the initiatives he undertook at the Oswaldo Cruz Institute and in the broader arena of public health.
